    I have been working at Allstate full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I work in the field so the flexibility with my position is great. The problem is getting the notice from the upper management, even when you do a great job, to see potential and move you up. Allstate is a good company but you gotta pay your dues with them to get anywhere.
    Pros - Flexibility, Work-Life Balance, Benefits are decent

    Cons

    Low Pay, Must really push and be in a good position to move up, Most positions and people they find replaceable, Sometimes the performance results you receive can be out of your control

    Advice to Management

    Position your good employees for a career path and let them know that the company wants and needs them more often. Listen to the employees ideas more and pay your employees in comparison to industry standards and not below.

    I worked at Allstate full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Allstate will not go out of business any time soon. The company is predictable, stable, and provides some job security. Most of the jobs are not very exciting, but not very demanding either. You will get a many vacation days, and a lot of flexibility on work schedule.

    Cons

    Pay is below average, and do not expect any big raises. Performance review is predetermined based on force ranking by upper management. If your immediate manager is new or not well liked, you are out of luck. Any challenge to status quo will be ignored or punished.

    Advice to Management

    There really is not much management can do. Management by fear may work in short term, but it will eventually get old and people will leave.
